Care and support for children and families

Hertfordshire County Council's Children's Services department offers a range of support, and services for families.

We want to help Hertfordshire children attain the best possible levels of education and development. We do this by working closely with the children themselves, their schools and their families to offer quality advice, support and guidance.

On this page you will find information on your child's welfare, taking care of children and where to get more help if you need it.

The Meeting the Needs of Children and Families in Hertfordshire handbook sets out clear thresholds for accessing targeted and specialist services. It will support practitioners in making decisions on how best to respond to the needs of children and families.

A pdf version of the handbook can be found on this page.
